Green Lights, Not White Flags
Last week, “GLEASON,” a documentary about the local hero premiered to universal acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival for industry insiders. Now, a much larger audience will be able to watch the movie. Amazon inked a deal to pick up “GLEASON” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
No White Flags at Sundance
Since 2011 when Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS, his battle with the disease has alternatively moved New Orleanians to tears and inspired us to greatness. Now, the rest of the world is learning Gleason’s story. “GLEASON,” a documentary about the local hero is dominating the Sundance Film Festival the same way that the former Saint dominated Atlanta on that fateful day in 2006.

Event to Mark Three Years Since Sinkhole Devastated Bayou Corne
On August 3, 2012, the lives of the people living on Bayou Corne changed forever. Deep beneath the feet of the city’s citizens, an underground salt dome cavern, owned by Texas Brine Company, collapsed. The event caused the creation of a dangerous sinkhole, which released oil and gases and sucked sediment, trees and more downward. As the now nearly empty community approaches the three-year anniversary of the disaster, documentary filmmaker and New Orleans resident Victoria Greene is hoping to bring the community back together for closure.

Film Review: 20,000 Days On Earth
Let me confess that I'm not a fan of Nick Cave's music nor have I read any of his books. I did see and like The Proposition , which he wrote. Does that make a difference when enduring 20,000 Days on Earth? I found myself several times thinking about Pink Floyd, whose music I have known since The Wall. Would I enjoy watching this film if Roger Waters or David Gilmour had made it and not Nick Cave?
Film Review: Kink
After one dismisses the splash and spank of its BDSM subject matter, James Franco produced Kink is simply a film with structural shortcomings. If you don't know what "BDSM" means, by all means drop the term in a search engine. You may not want to do this at work, with kids around, or at a library. The millions of hits that result demonstrate the popularity of the subject matter, but kink never saves or damns Kink. The way that the film is made does the latter.
